One of the easiest ways to give yourself a break is to remember you don't have to do it all. While handmade foods are important, not every element of your meal needs to be handmade. Instead of worrying about what to make, eliminate stress by purchasing a variety of easy and flavorful snacks for your guests. Grab a few different cheeses, meats, fruits, and nuts to create a snack board in less than five minutes. This will free up your time to make an excellent main dish or focus on other party details! / Wine Party / Ideas for Christmas Party / theanastasiaco.com @theanastasiaco
